average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

The property was well taken care of and accomidations were accurate to the post.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of people who stayed in the home and were very happy with the home. Plenty of space for everyone and the home was kept up. There were appliances and other needs that were helpful for the weekend visit. The sauna, hot tube and pool table were very convienent and fun while we stayed. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of linens to use. I would reccomend this home for rent especially if you are looking to be close by Waterbury or Stowe because of the close trip to nearby stores and down town- about a 20 min ride into Stowe. The owner was very helpful and kind with our needs and communication when arriving and departing. We will be renting again soon.

Great private getaway !

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the Classic Post & Beam Vermont Home ! The property was private and a safe getaway for 6 adults and 3 children . Close to so much to do and see for summer fun and the state park was just minutes down the street for a fun day of swimming and paddle board rentals . The boys had a great day of golf on the course right around the corner . The house has everything you would need with a peaceful and private deck and the sauna was beautiful . So relaxing , we would recommend this house and give it a high 5 ! So close to so much to do in Vermont ! The owners are very helpful and easy to reach if needed . The large kitchen was a plus as we all enjoy cooking while the boys played pool in the man cave !

Spent many years renting for a week each time.

  • 5 of 5

We have been very fortunate to have spent many weeks over a period of 15 years staying at this lovely home. The amenities are numerous and privacy abounds. The local area provides numerous dining, skiing, hiking and other outdoor activities for the adventurous. It is also a great romantic spot for just 2 or make it a family affair and spend the holidays. Thanks for the numerous memories!!!

A Great Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I rented the Timber Frame home for a long Weekend to celebrate my 35th Birthday. The place was great! Very clean and comfortable with all the extras that make a weekend get away even better ( the sauna was fantastic!) Bruce was very friendly and informative and really gave me a detailed explanation of how everything worked ( My wife really liked the "Big Red Book" that told us pretty much every place to eat,drink and hike in the area) we will definitely be back again and are already taking about making this Halloween weekend trip a yearly tradition!

Full Vermont Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Timber Frame to celebrate my 40th birthday. Four couples, stayed including two small dogs. Bruce and Donna's house is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you need to make your stay comfy; you really don't have to even need to leave! Everyone loved the hot tub and sauna, and it was nice to just relax in front of the fireplace. We played board games and enjoyed eating at the Prohibition Pig in downtown Waterbury. The dogs loved being able to run around in the snow (a nice change from the sidewalks of Boston). We highly recommend this house for anyone who's interested in the full Vermont experience. And we are definitely making Waterbury a yearly tradition -- and hopefully staying at the Timber Frame.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough how much we enjoyed our week at this beautiful house. My husband and I, two sons, their wives and our new grandson wished we could stay even longer. The kids were in the hot tub every night. We didn't have to find things to do during the day because we had somewhere we could enjoy by staying in. I'm trying to convince my husband to sell our new home and build one like this. We'd recommend this rental house for anyone wanting to enjoy the comforts of home on vacation.
